ALBANY, NY | The Towne Law Firm, P.C. has some recent updates regarding the Firm’s Partners and their external efforts for community outreach and involvement, as well as new geographic reach to accommodate increasing client needs in jurisdictions within the Northeast.

Partner, James T. Towne, Jr.  was recently asked to join the Board of Directors of 51 Steps to Freedom™, an organization that traces America’s struggle for Freedom & Equality along the Freedom Trail, uniting Washington from Anacsotia to Georgetown, from Foggy Bottom to Dupont Circle. From the Women’s Suffrage Procession on March 3, 1913 to the march on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August, 1963 to The Million Man March October 16, 1995 — to today — DC’s streets have paved the way for change, understanding and healing.  Get your sneakers on and get ready to visit over 250 years of DC’s historical transformation from slavery to freedom for all, where every step tells a story.  And the march goes on…
